I've received hundreds of questions regarding the Entity Framework and LINQ. Obviously developers are very interested in the Entity Framework and its data access and modeling implications. 

I responded to some of the most frequently asked questions in the May 2008 Data Points column. Topic includes:

  • Why use Entity SQL when I can use LINQ to get to entities?
  • What is the role of ObjectContext?
  • How do explicit and eager loading work LINQ and the Entity Framework?
  • How do I see the SQL that will execute?
  • What can I do with complex types?
  • How do I create a complex type?
  • You can find my Data Points column in the May 2008 MSDN Magazine issue online.
